Helping toddlers

The toddlers you work with are ready to soak up everything around them including what they see, feel and hear!  They may be on the move, exploring objects and toys and communicating with the people closest to them in lots of different ways including through gestures, sounds and words.  For practitioners, the toddler years provide a great opportunity to really help the children you work with on their journey to discovering, learning and doing the very best that they can.
